Emsella for Incontinence
Incontinence often causes great distress and disruption to your life, but support is now available with the Emsella Chair Treatment.
Recent studies surrounding urinary incontinence (also referred to as poor bladder control) have recorded higher numbers across Australia, afflicting 1 in 3 women, 1 in 10 men, and 1 in 5 children. Unfortunately, only 30% will seek further advice or treatment.

What is BTL Emsella Chair Treatment?
A ground-breaking new treatment for those struggling with incontinence, The Emsella Chair (also known as Emsella pelvic floor treatment and the incontinence treatment chair) is helping countless Australians recapture some control and comfort in their lives. It is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that is structured to build the strength of the muscles in the pelvic floor via high-intensity, focused electromagnetic energy. To improve intimate wellness and treat incontinence, the high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology induces deep pelvic floor muscle contractions, designed to deliver the equivalent of 11,200 Kegel exercises in over 28 minutes.
Pelvic floor exercises are designed to improve muscle strength.
How does the Emsella Chair work?
The Emsella Chair treatment is both straightforward and effective. The patient sits fully clothed in an ergonomic chair for the treatment, while the technology within the chair’s base employs the specified electromagnetic energy in order to stimulate thousands of supramaximal pelvic muscle contractions. Over time, this will gradually re-train the pelvic muscles and help the patient regain neuromuscular control over the bladder. Session durations are short, 30-minute blocks, which offer the same effect and intensity as 11,200 pelvic floor exercises.
Pelvic floor muscles
The pelvic floor muscles are located between the tailbone (coccyx) and the pubic bone within the pelvis. These pelvic floor muscles support the pelvic organs (bladder and bowel), and uterus in women). They prevent incontinence of bladder and bowel, prolapse and are also important in sexual function.

Who is the right candidate for BTL Emsella Chair Treatment?
When the pelvic floor muscles are weakened, do not have the strength or quickness to work well, are overactive or even working too hard, this may create problems with bladder and bowel control.
Aging, trauma and injury can cause the pelvic floor muscles to weaken which can then cause problems with urine control, erections, ejaculation and bowel function. This could include:
- Chronic constipation
- Prostate cancer treatment
- Women with painful periods
- Pain with sex
- Pain with urination
- Bowel pain
The BTL Emsella Chair treatment is suitable for women and men of any age who are looking to strengthen their pelvic floor muscles, looking for a solution to their incontinence or looking for a solution to improve their intimate health.
What is the Emsella Treatment time?
Treatments will typically last for 30 minutes, and for improved results, we recommend two sessions per week over three weeks, leaving six sessions in total.
What does it feel like?
Patients undergoing the Emsella pelvic floor treatment will typically experience a tingling sensation as their pelvic floor muscles contract throughout the procedure. The procedure is not painful and you may resume daily activities immediately after the treatment.
How fast will I see results?
Results will vary for each patient, with some noticing improvements after a single treatment. The results will typically continue to improve over the duration of the treatment.
Urinary incontinence is a complex and varying condition that can affect everyone differently. While some sufferers may only notice a small leak after laughing, sneezing, coughing or exercising, others may totally lose the ability to control their bladder. Fortunately, most cases will be manageable, treatable, and even completely cured.
If you are experiencing a problem with bladder or bowel control, it is important to be properly assessed by your GP as weak pelvic floor muscles are just one of the many causes of incontinence.
